Shimla: As soon as the Congress wins the Himachal Pradesh, the fight started among the leaders regarding the chair. Now a big piece of information is coming out about this. According to sources associated with Pratibha Singh, if the CM is not made from the family of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, there will be a split in the party. Pratibha Singh's camp claims that 25 MLAs are with the Virbhadra family. Don't commit the mistake of making Himachal Punjab by making another person the Chief Minister. This claim is being seen as a direct challenge to the high command. In such a situation, if there is a split in the Congress, then the BJP will not move back from taking advantage of it and as a result, the won Himachal can also go out of the hands of the Congress. Let us inform you that, Pratibha Singh has already said that, the election was fought and won in the name of Virbhadra Singh, so the Virbhadra family has the right to the Chief Minister's chair.

Pratibha Singh, the wife of former CM Virbhadra Singh, also said in a warning tone that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections are also near and this should also be kept in mind. Talking to the media before the discussion on the post of CM and the meeting of the Legislature Party, Pratibha Singh said, ''To whom leadership should be given, it is a sensitive matter. People are looking very seriously in this direction. People feel that our feelings should be respected.'' Pratibha Singh said that, when we were contesting this election, we saw that our condition was not good, then we played the card of Virbhadra Singh Ji. His name was taken, his works were counted and people voted in favor of Congress in his name only. He said that we are voting as a tribute to Virbhadra Singh.

Shimla: After winning the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections, the real challenge before the Congress is to choose a 'chief minister'.

She has said that the condition of Congress was not good in the elections, but in the name of Virbhadra Singh Ji, people have voted in favor of Congress. She has clearly said that the high command will decide the chief minister, but the wishes of the people should be kept in mind. Virbhadra Singh's wife Pratibha Singh also warned that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections are also around the corner and this should also be kept in mind.

Shimla: The results of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections are handing over power to Congress. In the 68-member Assembly, the Congress is leading in 37 seats. At the same time, the ruling BJP is having28 seats. Three independent candidates have also got a chance here. However, Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has not even been able to open its account. However, with the huge possibilities of Congress forming the government, the fight has started among the leaders for the CM's chair. State Congress chief Pratibha Singh, former state president Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Mukesh Agnihotri, veteran leader Sudhir Sharma and Vikramaditya Singh, son of former CM Virbhadra Singh, are in the race for the CM post. But, Pratibha Singh is said to be at the forefront of the rest. If Congress makes her CM, Pratibha Singh will be the first woman chief minister of the state. Pratibha Singh is the wife of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and is currently a Lok Sabha MP from Mandi. Virbhadra Singh had a lot of dominance over the state Congress since he became CM in 1983. Whenever the party formed the government, Virbhadra became the CM. This is the first election since 1983 when Congress contested without Virbhadra Singh after his death. Former Himachal Congress president Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu is also in the race for the post of CM. Sukhu has contested from Naudan's seat. He is also the head of the Himachal Pradesh Congress Campaign Committee. Mukesh Agnihotri is also endeavoring to become CM, he is a four-time MLA. Prior to 2017, he had also held important portfolios in the Virbhadra Singh-led government. At the same time, another contender for the post of CM, Vikramaditya Singh, is the son of Mandi MP Pratibha Singh. He has been elected for the second consecutive time from Shimla Rural. After the death of Virbhadra Singh, Vikramaditya was declared the new king of Rampur Bushehr state. However, political pundits say that since Vikramaditya is very young, he is not a contender for the chief minister's post.

Shimla: Counting is on for the elections held on 68 assembly seats in Himachal Pradesh. In the trends, once again the rule seems to be changing in the hill state, not the custom. That is, the process of changing the government after 5 years is visible this time also. The Congress is seen forming the government with an absolute majority in the trends. According to reports, the Congress party has so far won 16 seats, while it is leading in 23. Whereas, BJP has won 12 seats and is leading in 14. Other candidates have won 2 seats and leading in one. The AAP, which won the Delhi Municipal Corporation elections (MCD Election), has not been able to even open its account in Himachal yet. Dr. Ramlal Markanda, who was a minister in BJP's Jairam Thakur government, lost the election from the Lahaul-Spiti seat to Congress candidate Ravi Thakur. Congress's Kewal Singh Pathania has defeated Sarveen Chowdhary, who was a minister in the Jairam government, from Shahpur's seat in the Kangra district. Suresh Bhardwaj, who was the urban development minister in the Jairam cabinet, has been defeated by Congress's Anirudh Singh from Kasumpti seat in Shimla district. Suresh Bhardwaj was elected from Shimla Urban seat in the last four elections. This time the BJP high command fielded Bhardwaj from Kasumpti's seat, where he was defeated.

Shimla: Counting of votes for the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections is underway and initial trends show a tough contest. According to the latest trends, Congress is leading in 40 seats, while the BJP is leading in 25 seats. In the 68-member Himachal Assembly, the majority mark is 35 and in case the contest is tight, the politics of manipulation can start. In such a situation, Congress has activated its strategists. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda have been roped in for crisis management. According to sources, the Congress MLAs may be kept in a hotel in Chandigarh or elsewhere. The Congress fears that if there is a gap of two or three seats, the BJP may try to break its MLAs. MlAs may be affected by the BJP being in power at the Centre. Along with this, there is also a tussle over the post of CM in Pratibha Singh and Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu. In such a situation, the BJP can take advantage of this and pursue them by luring some MLAs into the cabinet. This is the reason why Congress has already agreed to the results and is preparing a plan to save the MLAs. In Himachal Pradesh, there has traditionally been a fight between the BJP and the Congress, but this time the close contest between the BJP and the Congress seems to be trapped in the power match in Himachal. Around 76.44 percent voting was recorded in all the 68 assembly seats in the state on November 12, in which the political fate of 412 candidates was captured in EVMs. Of these, 388 are male and 24 are female candidates.

In terms of vote share, Jairam came first with around 76.5 percent votes and Chetram got only 20.87 percent votes. Interestingly, CPM candidate Mahendra Rana got more votes than Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Geeta Anand. The AAP got 278 votes and the CPM got 689 votes.

SHIMLA : The Congress was leading the initial vote count in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly election. It crossed the half-way mark and was leading in 38 seats at around 11.45 a.m. The ruling BJP was leading in 33 seats earlier but, gradually slid to 26 and had won one seat, while the independents were leading in 3 constituencies. Hoshiyar Singh from Dehra, Hiteshwar Singh from Banjar in Kullu, and Ashish from Hamirpur Sadar, formerly the bastion of twice-elected chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, are independents and all BJP rebels. Early trends in the ballot count showed the Congress leading in the 68-member Assembly because Himachal Pradesh has not elected an incumbent administration to office in nearly 40 years. Jai Ram Thakur, the 57-year-old chief minister, triumphed in the Mandi district's Seraj, his stronghold. Mukesh Agnihotri, 60, and Sukhvinder Sukhu, 58, are two well-known Congress leaders who are in charge from the Haroli and Nadaun seats, respectively. The majority of exit polls indicated a close race between the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is contesting the Assembly elections for the first time, has been absent from the state while its leaders concentrate on growing its support base in Gujarat. Rebels who had severed links with the mainstream parties have been holding in-door parleys with the conviction that there is no permanent enemy or friend in politics as they sense a neck-and-neck race between the BJP and the Congress.

Yes, let us tell you that in the 2017 elections alone, the BJP won a huge victory with 44 seats, while the Congress had only 21. However, this time the picture seems to be reversing. In such a situation, it is being said that this time the patch has stuck and according to the data of the Election Commission, Congress is ahead in 38 seats and BJP is stuck on 27. If this trend continues then anything can happen in Himachal. Although the BJP has already become active in the midst of all this. Yes, the party has sent senior leader Vinod Tawde to Himachal Pradesh. On the other hand, sources say that the party has contacted 4 independent candidates, out of which three were BJP rebels. The magic number to form the government is 35 and if the BJP is left behind by a single seat, it may try to rely on independent candidates to form the government. Let us tell you that on one hand, BJP is in contact with independent MLAs, on the other hand, Congress is seen in defensive mode. While Rajeev Shukla is in Shimla and Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Bhupesh Baghel are also active. With this, Congress sources say that the party is struggling to retain the MLAs in its fold. It is being said that Congress may shift its MLAs to Chandigarh in case of any conflict. They will give return tickets of Shimla to the MLAs only after making arrangements to form the government in Himachal. If the BJP forms the government on its own, then there would be no need to do this, but Congress has made complete preparations.

BJP's vote share has gone down from the last elections in Himachal Pradesh. There is neck-and-neck flight between the BJP and Congress. Congress candidate from Shimla Rural and former CM late Virbhadra Singh's son, Vikramaditya Singh is leading with a total of 7233 votes.
Shimla: The counting of votes for the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections is underway and the initial trends show a close contest. In the trends so far, the BJP is leading on 34 seats, while the Congress has taken a lead on 30 seats. Let us tell you that in the 68-seat Himachal Assembly, the majority mark is 35 and in the event of a tight contest, politics of manipulation may begin. In such a situation, the Congress has activated its strategists. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda have been deputed for crisis management. According to sources, the Congress MLAs may be kept in a hotel in Chandigarh or elsewhere. The Congress fears that if there is a difference of only two or three seats, the BJP may try to poach its MLAs. Being in power at the center, MLAs can be influenced by BJP. Along with this, there is a tussle between Pratibha Singh and Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu over the post of CM. Taking advantage of this, the BJP can break some MLAs by luring them into the cabinet. This is the reason why Congress is already scared of the results and is preparing a plan to save the MLAs. Congress's tussle can also be understood from the fact that Pratibha Singh has already staked a claim on the chief minister's post. She heads the state unit of the party and is the wife of Virbhadra Singh, the six-time CM of the state. Virbhadra has a huge mass base in the state. In such a situation, Pratibha is also claiming in the name of hislegacy. Let us inform you that out of 68 seats in Himachal Vidhansabha, BJP won 44 seats in 2017. This time also the BJP has claimed victory and has spoken of ending the tradition of change of power. At the same time, Congress has said that the tradition of changing the rule will continue.
